of the facility in eastern algeria that simon referenced. neither b.p. or stat oil, nor the u.k. government nor the u.s. government able to provide any clarity about the state of that on peril rags. there are conflicting reports about casualties. b.p. along with other energy companies in the country are moving nonessential employees from algeria. once again, in the last hour the white house strongly condemning the attack on the plant and the white house spokesperson saying president obama is being briefed regularly on the situation. they would not provide any clarity about whether or not there are u.s. drones over algeria at this point. to give you the background, a group connected to al qaeda has claimed responsibility for this attack. they said it is in retaliation for fran's moving into mali. they tried to put a stop to islamic militants trying to take over that country. >> michelle, the earlier reports i saw in the associated press, news source, there were multiple fatalities, maybe as many as 35 among the whose stages. that is now an unreliable report, right? >> absolutely. at this point n
these great people to this day's fantastic events. >> a president who says government can help improve the lives of everyday americans. president barack obama fits that description and so does fdr, franklin delano roosevelt. let's bringing in personal historian doug brinkley to talk more about this. you've said fdr has been on your mind a lot as we countdown to the second inauguration. tell us why. >> in 1933 in march when fdr famously said we have nothing to fear but fear itself, that's because we were in the great depression. people were really worried what was going to happen. due to the new deal, due to the first 100 days, the fdr created the ccc and tva and the alphabet the soup of the new deal. we started getting out of the great depression. but by the time he gave his second inaugural in 1937, we were still in it. similar to president obama, he inherited the great recession, was able to do t.a.r.p. and all of this. won re-election, yet, there are still millions of americans living in the poverty and the middle class is still struggling. you've got watch that you're not triumphan
with the economy, social issues and government spending. she'll have four more years in her high profile position as first lady and agenda, all while making a fashion statement doing it. it sounds so shallow, doesn't it? pulitzer prize winning journalist robyn jiovan, good morning. thank you for being here. >> good morning. >> it always sounds so silly when you talk about the first lady's fashion but there is meaning behind it. please expound on that. >> yes, you know, i think it's one of the things that frustrates people within the fashion industry and probably a good deal of people who cover it. there seems t be this idea that these dresses, these suits that people wear and that they buy somehow just sort of drop out of the sky, that they're made by elves or something. we're talking about a $350 billion industry, an industry made up of a tremendous number of small businesses who, that employ actual live people. so to have a conversation about the impact of a first lady really underscoring the american fashion industry is really a conversation about a first lady who is celebrating american busin
that the government will run out of money. there will be no authorization to spend anything more and the government could functionally shut down. is that involved here at all? >> not in a formal sense. but of course all of this is linked together, what the spending plans are to come up with cuts to avoid the budget sequester which neither party wants because it affects it in is indiscriminate way. and do you have the continuing resolution which would expire a couple of weeks before this deadline. and that is a bill to fund the government the rest of the year. that's comparatively easy because the government spending is on auto pilot. the budget see quester is tougher but still as long as you have only a short term extension of the debt limit, tyler, that issue will hang over the debate. you just won't hang over it the next couple of weeks. >> see you monday more the inauguration. >> you bet. >> now to another breaking news station. this one in algeria. things are still very fluid. the terrorists are still holding hostages 800 miles south of aljeers. they also want the blind sheik. he was tied to th
americans held by islamic militants. u.s. government officials tell cnn that may not necessarily, though, be the case. let's get straight to our pentagon correspondent chris lawrence working this story for us. chris, be what is the very latest that you're hearing? >> wolf, the latest that we're getting from u.s. officials is that some americans may have escaped but some may still be held by those hostage takers and they are still seeing signs perhaps of some intermittent fighting, suggesting that perhaps this isn't over yet. as the hostage situation stretched to a second day, u.s. officials scrambled to find a resolution and determine the state of the americans still in militant hands. >> this incident will be resolved, we hope with a minimum loss of life. but when you deal with these relentless terrorists, life is not in any way precious to them. >> americans and other western workers were on as about when multiple militants attacked. the militants took hostage at this gas plant heavily armed with rocket grenades and forced some hostages to wear explosive vests. the militants may have t
